Project Name

Document Mozilla External String Guide

Project Description

On MDC the Mozilla internal string guide makes reference to a Mozilla external string guide which does not exist at this time.

For any developer looking for information on external strings this is a problem. It is specifically important to those developing Extensions, XULRunner applications, and embedders. At the wiki Mozilla internal string guide the link "here" in the sentence of the first paragraph:

"Extensions, XULRunner applications, and embedders should use the external strings, documented here."

points to nothing.

Here are some ways you can help with my project:

  1. Visit the Mozilla external string guide (Or if that fails to exist or seems alright Sandbox:Mozilla external string guide) and help with formatting, spelling, grammar, and anything else you can fix. (Be sure to refer to the How to help page on MDC.)

At the moment the project is released in it's final place, though it will still be edited there. It is at https://developer.mozilla.org/En/Mozilla_external_string_guide and any further changes should be made there.
